A Life in Illustration: The Most Famous Illustrators and Their Work

A Life in Illustration: The Most Famous Illustrators and Their Work

Автор:

What does an illustrator actually do and in what fields can one work? Today’s most successful illustrators present their work and talk about their experiences in one of life’s most beautiful careers. Illustration is no longer just illustration. Today, illustrators write and create children’s picture books and graphic novels; they structure information through infographics; they design logos, fonts, and other typographical applications; they contribute to the editorial design of newspapers and magazines; they apply their talents to advertising and fashion; and they develop and produce their own products on the basis of their creations.

Imperial Chinese Robes from the Forbidden City

Imperial Chinese Robes from the Forbidden City

Автор:

Focusing on the dress and accessories of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), this book accompanies the first European exhibition of clothes, accessories and textiles from the Palace Museum, Beijing. Sumptuous illustrations capture the grandeur of the garments worn by emperors and empresses which were made from exquistite materials of the very highest quality. Clothing systems were viewed as an important constituent of civilized society and the authors explain the relevance of the court’s calendar to its formal, «official» wardrobe. In Qing dynasty China there were clear rules on what to wear on different occasions. Official dress was worn when the emperor performed sacrifices at the Temple of Heaven and at other important rituals. Festive dress was for birthdays, weddings, festivals and imperial banquets. Military dress for troop inspection; travelling dress for hunting and royal visits to provinces, and regular dress for events of a non-celebrative nature, such as fasting and…

История водки

История водки

Автор: Вильям Похлебкин

Иногда за хорошим столом, да и просто на посиделках в лесных массивах может возникнуть серьезный вопрос: «А что мы пьем?» «Водку, — свой исконный напиток», — может прозвучать ответ. «Дистиллят или ректификат? Разбавленный спирт? Финскую, польскую, американскую?». Гуглить можно, но систематизировать прочитанное не получится — ответов миллион. В.В. Похлебкин, автор-энциклопедист написал «Историю водки» по заказу МИДа СССР, т.к. государству в 79 году пришлось давать серьезнейший отпор в международном арбитраже Польской народной республике о дате «изобретения» водки в их странах. Первичные вопросы дружественной Польши казались нелепыми и парадоксальными , т.к. это просто » весь мир знает». Ан нет — в капиталистическом мире ни традиции, ни пословицы значения не имеют. Нужны факты. У коньяка есть дата, у виски есть, у шнапса есть, а у водки? В.В.Похлебкин не был бы верен сам себе, если бы не построил свое исследование самым необычным образом. Он решил проследить всю историю…
